A reformed frat boy opens an antique store in a college town, and falls for the free-spirited girl who moves into the apartment above his shop. In time, this unlikely pair fall into a traditional courtship..
Clay, a small town antique store owner trying to leave his shame behind, rents the apartment above his store to a wandering girl. Elizabeth travels from town to town until her gas tank is empty, never staying long enough to make a real connection. As she gets to know her reticent landlord, a courtship develops. Clay goes slow and Elizabeth tries to push, and everyone wonders why he's so determined to be difficult. The real question is whether these two people can endure an old fashioned romance in a modern world. Along the way we learn about both their pasts and meet some of the people who have influenced them, for better or worse. We see some of the challenges of modern romance and dating.Written by

I really liked this film
I went to see this movie to support the idea that young men and women can enter and sustain a relationship without using each other for sex on their first date! I listen to a radio station out here on occasion and believe me, it happens way way too much. So sad. I really liked this film. By the time it was finishing up, I had tears running down my cheeks. Why? Because it was beautiful to see love like Clay and Amber's bloom as it did. REAL love, admiration, respect, etc. I found Amber to be the kind of young woman I would love to have as a good friend in my own life. Not only is she a "pretty girl" on the outside, she is very believable as a "real girl" just like you or me. Clay lives up to his name - kind of a "stick in the mud (clay)", but I could really relate to his inner pain. I felt much compassion and respect for him. In our modern culture, would love to see and hear from more men who are like Clay. I believe that they are out there! This movie addresses sex, marriage, playing the field, God, and taking chances. It is not preachy at all but it delivers the moral message we can all use. And at the end of the film, I started to clap, and then the entire theater joined with me! I want to see more movie like this made and distributed. It was worth the $10 ticket. I plan on buying the DVD when it is released. Parents, have your teens watch this movie; single ladies and men - go see this movie; dating couples - go see this movie; married folk - go see this movie. Do yourself a favor and forget about that other "love" move being so heavily promoted (50 Shades) and go see Old Fashioned instead!
